The request came at the end of a busy day. Jesus had been engaged in extensive teaching and was tired and exhausted. He told His disciples (no one else) to get into the boat; “Let’s cross over to the other side of the sea.” (Mark 4:35, HCSB)
He crossed to get rest from the pressure of the crowds. As soon as He arrived on the opposite shore, many people welcomed Him.
There’s a boat waiting for all people. Everyone receives an invitation, but not all accepted it. But, like the Christians before you who made the crossing, you accepted the invite and are ready to sail.
During your life, have you accepted Jesus’ invitation and invited Him into your heart? If you call Him Lord and Savior, at the end of your journey, Jesus will say to you, “Let’s cross over to the other side?”
